HORSEHEADS, N.Y. (WENY) – As New York’s Congressional District lines are shifting this year, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney made several stops in counties in the Southern Tier on Wednesday.
Tenney currently serves New York’s 22nd Congressional District. Under newly redrawn lines, she is running for re-election to the 23rd District, which includes Chemung County.
During her campaign tour Wednesday, she visited Southern Tier Logistics in Horseheads to discuss planned investments in addition to the challenges of growing a small business in a high-tax state like New York.
“It’s good news that we’re starting to do some job creation and a lot more investment,” Tenney said. “We just saw over $125 million is going to be invested in this region for these storage facilities, which is great.”
Tenney faces a republican primary election this June. She says if she’s elected to the 23rd District, she hopes to help other small business owners in the Southern Tier.
